Hating Covetousness

Covetousness also brings abjectness and sin.

Imam ‘Ali (a.s.) the Commander of the Faithful said: “The best affairs are those which are far from covetousness.”

He (a.s.) also said: “Restraint strengthens faith and covetousness destroys it.”

He (a.s.) also said: “The abjectness of men is in their covetousness.”

He (a.s.) also said: “Beware of the deception of covetousness, for if brings you hardship.”

He (a.s.) also said: “Anyone who does not purify his soul from the abjectness of covetousness abases himself, and in the hereafter his abasement is more and worse.”

Imam Muhammad al-Baqir (a.s.) said: “What a bad person is he who has a covetousness which incites him!”

He (a.s.) also said: “Seek for the survival of your honour through the killing of covetousness.”
